Thank You and Best Wishes for the Holidays and New Year

The holidays are upon us.  Where did 2018 go?  I guess time does fly when you are busy… and we have certainly been very busy at Hearthstone.  In fact, all of the great strides we have made over the past 12 months will be chronicled in an upcoming Note, but today’s topic is more important: It is simply to say thank you and to extend the very best in holiday and new year wishes to those that make this institution possible.

To our volunteers, some of the best people you can imagine working with, a deeply felt thank you. It has been said before, but it needs to be said again - nothing, literally nothing, could be accomplished at Hearthstone without you.

To our donors and sponsors, both individual and corporate, both large and small, we cannot say thank you often enough for your support and your leadership.

Your generosity, in terms of your time, your energy, your resources, and your love of this museum and all it stands for, is unmatched. Thank you.

Finally, if you and yours are about to celebrate Christmas or Kwanzaa or the New Year, or if you have celebrated Hanukkah or the winter solstice or any other end of year holiday, on behalf of everyone at Hearthstone, please permit me to wish you a joyous celebration this year and for many years to come.

Thank you for all that you do.

Just a note from the back porch.

- George, Executive Director at Hearthstone
